If you believe you are a victim of identity theft
If you believe you are a victim of identity theft or at risk of becoming one, consider using the CIFAS Protective Registration Service. Once you have registered, CIFAS members such as lenders and banks will carry out extra checks whenever anyone, including you, applies for a financial service using your address. They do this to make sure that a criminal is not trying to commit fraud by pretending to be you.
The telephone number of the service is 0330 1000 180 and the email address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
